  • Egg: 1, large
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: 3 tablespoons (60g)
  • Active Dry Yeast: 1 teaspoon (3g)
  • Milk: 0.6 cup (140ml), lukewarm
  • Bread Flour or Wheat Flour: 2 cups (300g)
  • Salt: 1/2 teaspoon (3g)
  • Unsalted Butter: 2 tablespoons (28g), softened, plus extra for greasing and topping
  • Egg Wash: 1 egg, beaten


  • Mold Size: 20x20cm (8″x8″)


  1. Activate the Yeast:
    • In a small bowl, mix the lukewarm milk with the active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy, indicating that the yeast is active and ready to use.
  2. Mix the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg lightly. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk until well combined.
    • Add the frothy yeast mixture to the bowl and mix.
    • Gradually incorporate the bread flour and salt, mixing until a sticky dough forms.
    • Add the softened unsalted butter to the dough, and knead until the butter is fully incorporated, and the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  3. First Rise:
    • Place the dough in a greased bowl, covering it with a clean kitchen towel. Allow it to rise in a warm, draft-free area until it doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Shape and Second Rise:
    • Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down gently to release any air bubbles.
    • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and shape it to fit your greased 20x20cm mold.
    • Cover the mold with the towel again and let the dough rise for another 30-40 minutes, or until it puffs up nicely.
  5. Preheat and Prepare for Baking:
    • Preheat your oven to 170°C (340°F).
    • Gently brush the top of the risen dough with the beaten egg wash for a golden finish.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the mold in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    • Remove the bread from the oven and brush the top with a little more unsalted butter for a soft, glossy crust.
    • Let the bread cool in the mold for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Slice the bread and enjoy the soft, fluffy texture and the subtle sweetness from the condensed milk. It’s perfect on its own or with a spread of butter or jam.

This Cloud-Soft Condensed Milk Bread is not just a treat for the taste buds but also a joy to make. With its simple ingredients and straightforward steps, you’ll find yourself returning to this recipe time and again. Happy baking!
